 DELPHINIUM "Blue Bird" ... buy it and other delphiniums at Kerns Nursery

Delphinium are probably one of the  most loved summer garden plants with their bold flowers held high above the garden border.  Though they also come in whites, lavenders, purple and pink shades, it is the beautiful blue flowers that are so coveted in the garden.  Not many plants do blue so well.  Delphiniums are quirky plants that are often termed short lived, yet you often hear of some that persist  for longer periods. 

We find that good and well drained soil is the best benefit for keeping the crowns form  rotting.   Planting this plant at the right soil level is crucial.  Check your plants in early spring to press heaved plants gently back into the soil for protection. 

During the growing season staking is necessary, especially before windy rain storms and angle prune spent stems.  Why bother?  Well because some things are just worth it.

We hope to see you at one of our events.  Please e-mail us with your questions or suggestions.
Come and visit us during our many events in 2003 !
